Historical Sketch. 

The Maryland Agricultural College was incorporated by an Act 
of the General Assembly of Maryland, dated March 6th, 1856, at a 
time when but one other such institution existed in the United States- 
Its express purpose was defined to be, "To instruct the youthful 
student in those arts and sciences indispensable to successful agricul- 
tural pursuit. ' ' Under the charter thus granted to a party of public- 
spirited private individuals, the original college building was erected, 
and its doors opened to students in the fall of 1859. ^^^ three years 
it was conducted as a private institution, but in 1862 the Congress of 
the United States, recognizing the valuable work in the cause of 
practical education which such colleges were doing for the country, 
passed the "Land-grant Act," providing for the establishment and 
maintenance of agricultural colleges, by applying for that purpose a 
proportionate amount of unclaimed western land, in place of scrip, 
to each State and Territory in the Union. This grant having been 
formally accepted by the General Assembly of Maryland, and the 
Maryland Agricultural College being named as the beneficiary of the 
grant, the College thus became in part, at least, a State institution, 
and such it is at the present time. 

In 18S7 the Federal Congress passed a second important Act in 
aid of the agricultural interests, appropriating $15,000 a year for the 
establishment and maintenance of agricultural experiment stations. 
The Maryland Station was located on the College farm, and was made 
a department of the College. In 1892 the Board of Trustees, so far 
separated it from the College as to put it under a special Director, who 
is directly responsible to the Board. The function of the Experiment 
Station is the investigation of those agricultural problems of most in- 
terest and concern to the farmers of the State, and the publication and 
dissemination of the results of such experiments, in the form of bul- 
letins, for the information and guidance of those interested in agricul- 
ture. Since the inception of the Experiment Station, its influence has 
steadily increased, and its sphere of usefulness has constantly widened, 
until it is now a well-recognized factor in the agricultural develop- 
ment of Maryland. 

Once more, in 1892, the Federal Government came to the aid of 
the agricultural and mechanical colleges. By the Act of Congress of 
that year an annual appropriation of $15,000, to be increased by $1,000 
each year until the sum of $25,000 was reached, was granted each 
State, to be applied to the further equipment and support of the agri- 
cultural and mechanical colleges. The primary object of this legis- 
lation was the development of the departments of agricultural and the 
mechanic arts, and the branches kindred thereto. Maryland, as was 
the case in all the States of the South, in order to comply with the 
terms of the Act of Congress, divided this fund between the State 
Agricultural College, and a somewhat similar institution for the edu- 
cation of colored students, located at Princess Anne, on the Eastern 
Shore of Maryland. 



During the last ten years the history of the College has been 
that of steady growth. This fact is evidenced by the increased 
numbers of students availing themselves of its facilities; by the erec- 
tion of many new buildings — the library and gymnasium building, 
the chemical laboratory, the mechanical engineering building (recently 
enlarged), Morrill Hall, the college barn, sanitarium and the new 
Administration building and barracks as well as by the establishment 
of the Department of Farmers' Institutes and the Departments of 
State Entomology and State Pathology. Under such favorable 
auspices the institution must continue to grow, and ultimately reach 
the status of being the most important factor in the agricultural and 
industrial development of the State. 

Location and Description. 

The Maryland Agricultural College is located in Prince George's 
County, Maryland, on the line of the Washington Branch of the B. & 
O. R. R., eight miles from Washington, and thirty-two miles from 
Baltimore. At least eight trains a day, from each city, stop at Col- 
lege Station, thus making the place easily accessible from all parts of 
the State. The telegraph station is Hyattsville, connected with the 
College by a telephone line. 

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington 
turnpike. The suburban town of Hyattsville is two and one-half 
miles to the south, and Laurel, the largest town in the county, is 
thirteen miles to the north, on the same road. Connection with 
Washington may be had by steam and electric railway. 

The site of the College is particularly beautiful. The buildings 
occupy the crest of a commanding hill, covered with forest trees, and 
overlooking the entire surrounding country. In front, extending to 
the turnpike, is a broad, rolling campus, the drill ground and athletic 
field of the students. In the rear are the farm buildings and barn. 
A quarter of a mile to the northeast are the buildings of the Experiment 
Station. The College farm contains about three hundred acres, and 
is devoted to the gardens, orchards, vineyard and to general farming. 

The main College building is of brick, five stories in height. It 
contains the students' quarters, mess hall, chapel, lecture rooms and 
offices. The dormitories are large, well ventilated, and provided with 
fire escapes, and bath and water rooms. All the buildings are lighted 
with gas and heated with steam from central plants on the College 
grounds. An addition to the main building has been erected, con- 
taining commodious bath rooms on each floor, with the most modern 
appliances for the comfort and health of the students. 

The Mechanical Engineering Department is located in a two-story 
brick building, completed in 1896, and now throughly equipped. It 



contains workshops for carpentry and forging, machinery rooms, a 
drawing room, library and ofl&ce. It is a. model building of its kind. 

The chemical building was completed in 1897 and is now thor- 
oughly equipped. It contains several lecture rooms, laboratories for 
practical work and for the analysis of fertilizers and feeding material 
for domestic animals, which work is assigned to the Professor of 
Chemistry at this College by an Act of the General Assembly. He is 
thus the State Chemist. 

In 1894 the present building of the gymnasium and library was 
erected. The gymnasium on the ground floor is well furnished with 
modern athletic appliances. The library and reading room is on the 
second floor and is a large, well-lighted and convenient room for the 
purpose. 




SANITARIUM. 

One of the most noteworthy additions to the group of College 
buildings is Morrill Hall, This building provides ample accommo- 
dations for the Departments of Agriculture, Horticulture, Biology, 
Physics, Entomology, Vegetable Pathology and Veterinary Science, 
thus relieving the pressure of close quarters from which these depart- 
ments have suffered, and greatly extending their opportunities for the 
development of high-grade scientific work. 

A modern sanitarium, well equipped — a long- felt want — has now 
been completed and furnished, and is ready for occupancy. Our 
patrons will no doubt be gratified to learn of this addition. Any 
form of contagious disease can thus be isolated, and the work of the 
College be continued without danger to those remaining. 

Another important improvement to the working facilities of the 
College and farm is a new and model barn. Especial attention is in- 
vited to the arrangement of this building, which is in many ways an 
example of an almost perfect general utility farm building.

The general appearance of the College grounds is exceedingly 
attractive. They are tastefully laid off in lawn and terraces, with 
ornamental shrubbery and flower beds, and the view from the grove 
and campus cannot be surpassed.

The location of the College is healthful; the sanitary conditions 
are excellent. No better proof of this can be given than that there 
has been no really serious case of illness among the students for ten 
years. 

Provision for Enlargement and Repair of Buildings* 

At the last session of the I^egislature $25,000 was appropriated 
for making greater accommodations for the increasing demand for 
matriculation and $5,000 for an addition to the mechanical building. 



11 

These improvements are now well under way, and the contract with 
the builder requires that at least two floors of the new building be 
ready for occupancy September 15th, 1903. 

The new building is designed for Administration offices, a large 
drill hall and armory and a commodious assembly hall. (See cuts). 

The addition to the Mechanical Engineering Building will relieve 
the congestion which has been caused by a largely increased number 
of students taking this course.

General Aim and Purpose. 

The Agricultural College is the State School of Science and 
Technology. While seeking, first of all, to perform the functions of 
an agricultural college, its sphere of work has been widened to em- 
brace all the sciences akin to agriculture and all the arts related to 
mechanical training. To these special and prominent lines of work 
have been added such branches of study as are necessary for a liberal 
education, for the development of the intelligent citizen and the 
making of the man of general culture. The purpose of this College 
is to give to young men anxious to prepare themselves for the active 
duties of life such training in the sciences or in the mechanical work- 
shop as will enable them to take their places in the industrial world 
well prepared for the fierce competition of the day.

General Aim and Purpose. 

The Agricultural College is the State School of Science and 
Technology. While seeking, first of all, to perform the functions of 
an agricultural college, its sphere of work has been widened to em- 
brace all the sciences akin to agriculture and all the arts related to 
mechanical training. To these special and prominent lines of work 
have been added such branches of study as are necessary' for a liberal 
education, for the development of the intelligent citizen and the 
making of the man of general culture. The purpose of this College 
is to give to young men anxious to prepare themselves for the active 
duties of life such training in the sciences or in the mechanical work- 
shop as will enable them to take their places in the industrial world 
well prepared for the fierce competition of the day. 



12 

Recognizing that such an education, in order to be of practical 
advantage to the many, must be oflFered at a cost within the means of 
all, the expenses for the year to the student have been reduced to the 
point where his college dues are not in excess of his ordinary daily 
expenses. It is to be remembered that the College is a State institu- 
tion, in part supported by the State, in part by the Federal Govern- 
ment, through its several endowment Acts, and that it is in no sense 
a money -making institution, but simply a medium of disbursement by 
the government to those classes upon whom the safety and prosperity 
of the State so largely depend. 

While the College provides, as will hereinafter be explained, 
several distinct courses of instruction looking to the special training 
of the student in agriculture, mechanical engineering, the natural and 
physical sciences and belle lettres, the fact is clearly kept in view that 
a sound foundation must be laid for each and every course. Success- 
ful specialization is only possible after the student has been prepared 
for it by a thorough training in the essentials. All education must be 
narrow and one-sided which does not provide for the general culture 
of the student, and which does not look first to the natural and normal 
development of the individual. The general working plan of the 
College may be thus described: 

It begins with the student in his first, or Freshman year, a sys- 
tematic and carefully adjusted scheme of work, differing but little in 
the several courses, and looking to his general development in mental 
strength, range of information and power of expression and thought. 
At the beginning of his second, or Sophomore year, the differentiation 
may be said to begin along those lines in which he shows most natural 
aptitude. This gradual specialization continues during his third, or 
Junior year, until in his last, or Senior year, his work consists wholly 
of one or more closely-connected topics, in which he is thus able thor- 
oughly to prepare himself. With the present equipment of the labor- 
atories and mechanical workshops a student is able to become so pro- 
ficient in his chosen line of work that when he leaves the College a 
career is open to him if he chooses to avail himself of it. 

The Agricultural College is, legitimately, the crowning point of 
the public school system of Maryland. Its aim is to provide a higher 
education to the graduates of the county schools. To this end its 
curriculum is adjusted to meet the preparation of such students. It 
is this class of young men that the College is especially desirous of 
reaching. Experience has shown that our most satisfactory students 
come as graduates from the county schools, and no efforts will be 
spared to make the transition from the high school or grammar school 
to the College a possible one for all those actuated by an earnest 
desire to complete their education.

Departments — Equipment and Work. 

The following is a brief account of the equipment of the several 
departments of the College and the general character of the instruction 
given in each: 

Agricultural Department* 

W. T. L. Taliaferro, Professor. 
C. F. DOANE, Instructor in Dairying. 

The Agricultural Department oflFers four courses — (a) a four-years' 
course, leading to the degree of B. S.; (b) a special two-years' course, 
for proficiency in which a certificate is awarded (see p. 49); (c) a 
special creamery course; (d) a ten-weeks' winter course (see p. 49). 

Outline of Four-Years' Course. 

Course I, Livestock — First Term, Freshman Year— Eight periods 
per week; four theoretical, four practical. This course is de- 
voted to the detailed study of farm live stock. Professor Curtiss' 
"Horse, Cattle, Sheep and Swine" is used as a text-book, supple- 
mented by the "Breeders' Ga- 
zette," "Hoard's Dair}'man" 
and other live stock journals 
and experiment station bulle- 
tins for collateral reading and 
for reference. Practical lessons 
are drawn from the stock on 
the Experiment Station farm. 
The United States Cattle Quar- 
antine Station for the port of 
Baltimore is but a few miles 
from the College, by the B. & 
O. R. R., and whenever there 
is an importation of stock of 
special merit the agricultural 
students are taken to the Quar- 
antine Station to inspect and study the importation. Another feature 
of this course is the visiting by the students of private stock farms 
in various parts of the State to study not only the stock itself, but 
methods of handling it. 

Course II, Elementary Agriculture — Third Term^ Freshman 
Year — Eight periods per week; four theoretical, four practical. The 
elementary principles of agriculture, including the composition 




Scoring Horses.

voted to the detailed study of farm live stock. Professor Curtiss' 
"Horse, Cattle, Sheep and Swine" is used as a text-book, supple- 
mented by the "Breeders' Ga- 
zette," "Hoard's Dairyman" 
and other live stock journals 
and experiment station 1)ullc- 
tins for collateral reading and 
for reference. Practical lessons 
are drawn from the stock on 
the P^xjieriment Station farm. 
The United vStates Cattle Uuar- 
antine Station for the port of 
Baltimore is but a few miles 
from the College, ]:)y the B. cSi 
O. R. R., and whenever there 
is an importation of stock of 
special merit the agricultural 
students are taken to the Uuar- 
antine Station to inspect and study the importation. Another feature 
of this course is the visiting by the students of private stock farms 
in various parts of the State to study not only the stock itself, but 
methods of handling it. 

Course II, Elementary Agriculture — Third Term, Freshman 
Year — Eight periods per iceek; four theoretical, four practical. The 
elementary principles of agriculture, including the composition

of soils and plants, the mechanical conditions of soils, cultivation, 
manures and fertilizers, rotations, plant reproduction and selection 
of seed. 

This course aims to give a comprehensive though elementary 
knowledge of the principles of improved agriculture and their prac- 
tical application. 

Course III, Crop Production — First Term, Sophomore Year — Five 
periods per week; three theoretical, two practical. Crop production, 

the study of farm 
crops in detail, as to 
history, uses and re- 
quirements, includ- 
ing local adaptation, 
varieties, fertiliza- 
tion, cultivation, 
harvesting. Morrow 
& Hunt's "Soils and 
Crops" is the text- 
book. The College 
farm furnishes the 
opportunity for the

Course IV, Soils — Second Term, Sophomore Year — Seven periods 
per week; three theoretical and four practical. The study of the 
physical and chemical conditions of the soil in their relation to agri- 
culture. The soil is the basis of 

all agriculture, and a knowledge of 
its properties and functions cannot 
be too strongly emphasized. The 
study of this important subject is 
conducted by means of lectures, 
text-book, laboratory and field 
work. The text-book jised is Prof. 
King's "The Soil." No State in 
the Union, perhaps, possesses a 
greater variety of soils than Mary- 
land, and great attention is paid 
to the study of soil types in their 
relation to profitable agriculture. 

Course V — Third Term, Sophomore Year — Five periods per 
week; three theoretical, two practical. This term is devoted particu- 
larly to the study of the planting and handling of spring crops. The 
selection and scoring of seed corn and other grains is made a specialty. 
The first breeding plat of com in the State of Maryland was planted 
in the spring of 1903 by the students taking this course.

periods per week; two theoretical, two practical. The principles of 
stock breeding. The wonderful success which has attended the 
efforts of well-informed and judicious breeders on the one hand, and 
on the other the greater number of practically worthless animals to be 
found in the country, clearly illustrate the need on the part of the 
general farmer for a more intimate knowledge of, and a closer atten- 
tion to, the principles which underlie this important branch of farming. 
Miles' "Stock Breeding" is the text-book in this course, but is rein- 
forced by the study of the breeding and records of noted animals in 
all of the principal breeds.

Department of Mathematics. 

' ^ R. W. Silvester, Professor. 

Henry T. Harrison, Assistant. 

Mathematics is the basis upon which scientific information rests. 
A knowledge of the study is necessary, as much from the utilitarian 
point of view as from the mental training its acquisition gives. Its 
importance as a factor in our college course takes its rise from the 
former consideration. All instruction in this work is with a view to 
the equipping of students for the more practical work soon to follow. 

The class work in mathematics in the several courses consists of 
arithmetic, bookkeeping, algebra, geometry (plane and solid), trigo- 
nometry (plane and spherical), descriptive geometry, in its application 
to mechanical drawing, analytical geometry, differential and integral 
calculus, in their application to mechanics, engineering, physics 
and surveying. 

In the applied mathematics, bookkeeping is taught every student. 
No matter what vocation a man intends to follow, a knowledge of 
business forms and methods of systematic accounts is a requisite to 
success. To be able to use an ordinary compass or transit, for the 
purpose of laying out, dividing and calculating the area of land, or of 
running outlines and leveling for the purpose of drainage, is a neces- 
sary accomplishment for every intelligent farmer.

Department of English and Civics* 

F. B. BoMBERGER, Professor. 
Charles S. Richardson, Assistant. 

This department, as its names implies, covers the work of two 
distinct courses of instruction. It seeks to prepare the student by 
systematic training in the history, structure and use of the English 
language, for the highest development of his mental powers and for 
the complex duties and relations of life; and further, to fit him for 
the active and intelligent exercise of his rights and duties as a man 
and citizen. 

The course in English of necessity lies at the base of all other 
courses of instruction. A clear and comprehensive knowledge of his 
mother tongue is absolutely necessary to the student in pursuing any 
line of college work. Nor is this all, for aside from the practical 
value of the English instruction as an aid to other branches of stady^ 
and as a preparation for business and profession, it is to his training 
in this department, in connection with his study of history and the 
classics and modern languages, that the student must look for the 
acquiring of that general culture that has always been the distinguish- 
ing mark of the liberally educated man. The English work, which 
is common to all courses, consists of the study of the structure of the 
English language, literature (English and American), theoretical and 
practical rhetoric, logic, critical reading and analysis, and constant 
exercise in expression, composition and thesis writing. 

The course in civics is especially designed to prepare young men 
for the active duties of citizenship. The first two years are devoted 
to the study of general history, followed by the principles of civil 
government, constitutional history, political economy, with special 
reference to current social and industrial problems, and, finally, lec- 
tures on the elements of business law.

Department of Chemistry* 

Dr. H. B. McDonnell, Professor. 
A. B. Foster, Assistant. 

This department is charged with two distinct classes of work: 
(i) the State fertilizer and food control, and (2) the instruction of 
students. The State work necessitates the publication of the 
"Quarterly," which is usually made up of the results of analysis of 
fertilizers and feeding stuflfs, and is sent free of charge to all Mary- 
land farmers who apply. Students do no part of this work, the 
assistants invariably being college graduates. 



23 



The chemical laboratory building is devoted entirely to chem- 
istry. It is new and, not including basement, is two stories high. 
On the first floor are the laboratories for the State fertilizer and food 
control work, office, lecture room and balance room. On the second 
floor are three laboratories for the use of students — one for each 
class — a students' balance room, with first-class chemical and assay 
balances, and a supply room. The assay furnaces are in the base- 
ment. Each student is provided with a working desk, lockers, 
reagents and apparatus. Additional apparatus and material are pro- 
vided from the supply room, as needed. 

The department is provided with a small but well-selected library 
of standard reference books on chemistry, to which additions are 
made from time to time. 

Instruction in chemistry is begun with the Sophomore year, four 
hours per week being devoted to lectures and recitations, and three 

to four hours to practical 
work in the laboratory by 
the student, under the super- 
vision of the instructor. In 
this way he comes in direct 
contact with the substances 
studied, having at hand am- 
ple facilities for learning 
their properties. Special at- 
tention is given to the ele- 
ments and compounds of 
practical and economic im- 
portance, such as the air, 
water and soil; the elements 
entering into the composi- 
tion of plants and animals; 
the useful metals, etc. The course in the Sophomore year is intended 
to give the student that practical and theoretical knowledge of 
elementary chemistry which is essential in the education of every 
man, no difference what his vocation. It also serves as a foundation 
for advanced work in chemistry, if such a course is chosen. 

Chemistry becomes an elective study in the Junior year, when 
an advanced course in general chemistry is given, together with 
qualitative analysis, quantitative analysis, mineralogy and chemical 
technology. Four hours per week are devoted to the lecture room, 
and from twelve to fifteen hours to laboratory work. 

During the senior year the work consists of organic chemistry 
and agricultural chemical analysis, including analysis of fertilizers, 
feeding stuffs, water, etc. , and a short course in assaying. The work 
of the last term consists, mainly, in the preparation of a thesis 
involving original work.

Department of Chemistry. 

Dr. H. B. McDonnell, Professor. 
A. B. Foster, A.ssistant. 

This department is charged with two distinct classes of work: 
(i) the State fertilizer and food control, and (2) the instruction of 
students. The State work necessitates the publication of the 
"Quarterly," which is usually made up of the results of analysis of 
fertilizers and feeding stuffs, and is sent free of charge to all Mary- 
land farmers who apply. Students do no part of this work, the 
assistants invariably being college graduates. 



23 



The chemical laboratory building is devoted entirely to chem- 
istry. It is new and, not including basement, is two stories high. 
On the first floor are the laboratories for the State fertilizer and food 
control work, office, lecture room and l)alance room. On the second 
floor are three laboratories for the use of students — one for each 
class — a students' balance room, with first-class chemical and assay 
balances, and a supply room. The assay furnaces are in the l)ase- 
nient. Each student is provided with a working desk, lockers, 
reagents and apparatus. Additional apparatus and material are pro- 
vided from the supply room, as needed. 

The department is providetl with a small but well -selected library 
of standard reference books on chemistry, to which additions are 
made from time to time. 

Instruction in chemistry is begun with the Sophomore year, four 
hours per week being devoted to lectures and recitations, and three 

to four hours to practical 
work in the laboratory by 
the student, under the super- 
vision of the instructor. In 
this way he conies in direct 
contact with the substances 
studied, having at hand am- 
ple facilities for learning 
their pro])erties. Special at- 
tention is given to the ele- 
ments and compounds of 
})ractical and economic im- 
portance, such as the air, 
water and soil; the elements 
entering into the composi- 
tion of plants and animals; 
the useful metals, etc. The course in the Sopliomore year is intended 
to give the student that practical and theoretical knowledge of 
elementar}' chemistry which is essential in the education of ever}' 
man, no diff"erence what his vocation. It also serves as a foundation 
for advanced work in chemistry, if such a course is chosen.

The object of the full chemistry course is to prepare the graduate 
for positions in agricultural colleges, experiment stations, or the 
United States Department of Agriculture. The demand for our 

graduates for such positions 
is far in excess of the sup- 
ply. 

Each student in chemistry 
is charged $6.00 per year to 
partly cover the expense of 
the material used. This 
does not include breakage of 
apparatus, which is charged 
extra. This charge seldom 
exceeds one or two dollars 
in the Sophomore year, or 
two or three dollars in the 
Junior or Senior year, de- 
pending upon the habits of

culture are required to attend the twenty lectures given on veterinary 
subjects and to examine patients in the stables. Students of the 
two-year agricultural course receive during the first year one lecture 

and four practical periods per 
week for the first term; two lec- 
tures and six practical periods 
per week for the second term. 
During the second year they 
receive two lectures and four 
practical periods per week for the 
three terms. The character of 
the work is such as to enable a 
stock owner to care for animals 
in health and disease in an intelli- 
gent manner, to appreciate symp- 
toms of disease, and so treat the 
Class in Veterinary Science. commoner disorders and diseases 

of the domesticated animals. 




Department of Entomology and Zoology* 

T. B. Symons, Associate Professor. 
R. I. Smith, Assistant. 

The instruction in this department is given by means of lectures, 
laboratory practice and field work. In the lectures the more general 
questions are discussed, with a view of giving the students as broad 
a knowledge of the subject as practicable in the time devoted to it. 
In the laboratory, attention is given to methods of investigation, 
insect anatomy, and preparation and classification of collections made 
in the field. The work of this department is open only to Juniors 
and Seniors in the Agricultural, Chemical and General Science 
Courses, unless by special arrangement. 

Course I, Zoology — J^irsi and Second Terms, Junior Year — Six 
periods per week; lectures and laboratory exercises. This course 
involves a study of representatives of the principal groups of animals, 
together with lectures on their structure and classification. 

Course II, Entomology — Third Term, Junior Year — General 
Course — Eight periods per week. Lectures and laboratory exercises. 
The lectures treat of the zoological position of insects, the charac- 
teristics of the orders, sub-orders, and the more important families; 
the habits and life history of insects, with special reference to those 



/ 



species that are of economic importance. The laboratory and field 
work includes the study of the more general features of insect anat- 
omy, the determination of general species, and the collection and 
preservation of insects. 

Course III, Entomology — Senior Year. Advanced course. Open 
only to students who have completed Courses I and II or their equiv- 
alents. This course consists of special work in morphology or classi- 
fication, or working out the life history of insects. Students making

Department of Botany and Vegetable Pathology. 

J. B. S. Norton, Professor. 
Frederick H. Blodgett, Assistant. 

The courses in Botany are intended to give such knowledge of 
the vegetable kingdom as is a proper element in general culture; to 
train the student mind in observation, comparison, generalization 
and other mental processes essential to true scientific methods in anj' 
work, and to furnish a basis for practical studies directly connected 
with agriculture, for since plants in the field and garden are the sub- 
jects dealt with, the study of plant life must be one of the funda- 
mental sciences on which such work is based. No course can be 
taken unless those preceding it or their equivalent have been pursued.

acquire. Especial attention is paid to Latin syntax and idioms. The 
translation work of the course consists of selections from Sallust, Ver- 
gil, Cicero, Horace, Caesar, Ovid, I^ivy, Juvenal, Tacitus and 
Terence. 

On account of the large percentage of Germans in our population, 
a speaking knowledge of this language is very important, and especial 
attention is given to conversation. After the elements of the lan- 
guage have been mastered, and a certain facility of translation 
acquired, the class is divided, and the students pursuing the Classical 
Course continue to translate from the works of classic German authors, 
while the students of the Scientific Courses are given scientific Ger- 
man for translation. 

In French, also, after the elementary work and grammar have 
been completed, the students of the Classical Course, and those of the 
other courses are separated, the former translating selections from 
French literature, while to the latter are assigned books and periodicals 
of a scientific nature for translation.

Pfcparatofy Department. 

Henry T. Harrison, Principal. 
Charles S. Richardson, Assistant. 

This department was organized in 1892, and is designed to meet 
the requirements of those students who have not had the advantages 
of a thorough grammar school training, with a view to equipping 
them to enter the regular collegiate department. 

Only such students are desired as will be able to enter the Fresh- 
man class within a year, and who are fifteen years of age. This 
course is recommended especially to students who have not been to 
school for several years; for their progress in the regular collegiate 
course, by virtue of such a drawback, would be seriously impeded. 
It is to be remarked that as a rule the students who have taken this 
course make excellent progress in their later college work. Students 
in this department are subject to the same military regulations as 
other students, 

Course I, Arithmetic — First and Second Terms — Ten periods per 
week. Wentworth's Grammar School Arithmetic, completed. 

Course II, Arithmetic — Third Term — Five periods per week.

Military Department* 

Ezra B. Fuller, Major 7th Cavalry, U. S. A., 
Commandant of Cadets. 

The Military Department is a distinctive feature of the College. 
By special Acts of Congress, provision is made for the maintenance of 
a Department of Military Science and Tactics in each of the land-grant 
colleges. An officer of the United States Army is detailed to act 
as instructor and as commandant of cadets. 

The Military Department of this College is in a most flourishing 
condition. All students upon entering, unless physically incapacitated, 
are enrolled in one of the companies of the cadet battalion. Students 
are required to wear the prescribed uniform at all times when on 
duty. The discipline in barracks is entrusted to cadet officers, under 
the supervision of the Commandant, and the discipline of the 
College is generally militarj'^ in its nature. The practical instruction 
of the cadets consists of daily drills in the "School of the Soldier," 
"School of the Company," "School of the Battalion" (in close and 
extended order), the "School of Cannoneer" and out-post duty. 
The study of tactics and lectures on military science and tactics, with 
practical lessons in procedure of military courts, constitute the class- 
room work of the department. 

The Military Department is a decided factor in the moral and 
physical development of the student body. By encouraging habits of 
promptness, obedience and neatness, and by its beneficial effects upon 
the carriage and general health of the students, it adds materially to 
the usefulness of the College as an educational institution in the true 
sense of the word. It teaches a system of organization that governs 
mankind. 

Discipline. 

The discipline of the College, as has been stated, is generall5'' 
military in its character. Students are under the control of cadet 
officers, subject to the direction of the officer in charge, who makes a 
daily report to the Commandant of Cadets. The final authority, how- 
ever, in all cases, is the President of the College. 

All students are expected to conduct themselves as young 
gentlemen worthy of respect and confidence, and to be truthful under 
all circumstances. Upon entrance, each one is required to give his 
word that he will comply with all the rules and regulations of the in- 
stitution. A copy of the rules is then given him, and he is held 
responsible for all acts in disregard thereof. Cadet officers in receiv- 
ing the honors which promotion implies, accept zvith them, obligations and 
duties which they are bound to regard. This is the key-note of student 
government. Failure in duty means, necessarily , forfeiture of confidence 
and trust. 



Punishment for trivial breaches of regulations consists of de- 
privation of privileges, confinement to grounds or rooms, or special 
military duties; for aggravated oflfenses the punishment may be 
suspension or expulsion, at the discretion of the Faculty and the 
President. 

If one hundred demerits be given to any student during any one 
term, marked deficiency in conduct is apparent and his parents or 
guardian must at once remove him from college. 

A cadet manifesting an indiflerence to the observance of the rules 
and regulations of the institution or wanting in proper attention to 
the preparation of his work, will be cautioned to improve in these 
particulars. Failing to do so, his parents, upon notice given by the 
President, must withdraw their son. 

A special pledge to refrain from what is popularly known as 
"hazing," and from taking unfair means in examination, is required 
^f every applicant for entrance, before he will be allowed to matricu- 
late. Parents should impress upon their sons that a failure to live up 
to this pledge is a dishonor which unfits them to be longer inmates 
of the College. "Hazing'^ is invariably pwiished by instant dismissal. 

Frequent absences from the College are invariably of great disad- 
vantage to the student, in breaking in upon the continuity of his work, 
and in distracting his m.ind from the main purpose of his attendance at 
the institution. Parents are therefore earnestly asked to refrain front 
granting frequent requests to leave the College. 

Students will not be permitted to leave classes or quarters during 
study hours to answer telephone messages, unless the latter are verj^ 
urgent. 

Three reports are sent to each parent during the year, showing 
the student's progress in class work, and his general standing, as to 
conduct, etc. At the end of the year a detailed report of the year's 
work is made. 

Promotions. 

The awarding of commissions and of warrants to officers and non- 
commissioned officers of the battalion is based on soldiery bearing, ob- 
servance of the rules of the College and scholastic attainments. These 
are valued in the order named — ^forty per cent., thirty per cent., thirty 
per cent. Perfect would be one hundred. Below seventy per cent, 
deficient, and hence not considered for promotion. The facts on which 
the final standing is made for recommendation for promotion are ob- 
tained from the Commandant's record of soldierly bearing and conduct, 
and from the recorded written reports of the Faculty as to conduct, 
recitations and examinations. Commissioned officers are selected 
from the Senior class; sergeants from the Junior class, and corporals 
from the Sophomore class. No exception will be made to this order, 
unless it be that the number of men in any one class is not sufficient 



39 

for the quota of ofl&cers required. The standing of a cadet at the end 
of the year will be the basis of recommendation for his promotion. 
The possibility of his working oflf conditions during the summer 
cannot be considered, this being a very uncertain factor. 

Uniform. 

The cadet uniform, of substantial cadet-grey cloth, which is re- 
quired to be worn by students at all times, is made by contract with 
the tailors at a much lower price than it could be furnished to indi- 
viduals. The student's measure is taken after he arrives at the Col- 
lege, and the fit is guaranteed. The cost of the entire outfit — coat, 
trousers and cap — is $16.00. Parties coming through Baltimore can 
leave measures and orders with the New York Clothing House, 
102-104 East Baltimore street. Payment must be made for this at time 
of entrance. This is imperative ; the firm requires it.

and this is continued until the student has acquired a mastery of vocal 
expression, and a pleasing and forcible delivery. The student is then 
required to deliver both extempore and prepared speeches, covering a 
wide range of subjects, in this way not only securing practice in 
delivery, but also developing the power of logical thought. 

Course I — First Term, Freshman Year — One period per week. 
Articulation, accent, modulation, force and re-articulate pause; ex- 
pressive management of the body, attitude, and motion. Selections 
of poetry and prose are read and declaimed by students.

Department of Physical Culture. 

Charles S. Richardson, Director. 

The physical culture of the students is provided for by a regular 
course of instruction in the gymnasium. The course is carefully 
planned, so as to develop gradually and scientifically the physical 
powers of each student. Beginning with the simplest calisthenic 
exercises, the instruction covers the whole field of light and heavy 
gymnastics and field and track athletics. 

The equipment and arrangement of the gymnasium is very com- 
plete, and the interest manifested by the students is a sufl&cient proof 
of the success of this department. While desiring to make the work 



41 

in the gymnasium of practical value to all the students, the required 
work only extends through the Preparatory, Freshman and Sopho- 
more years. Three periods per week, Preparatory, Freshman and 
Sophomore years. 

One of the most valuable features of this department is a com- 
plete anthropometry outfit by means of which measurements and 
strength tests of students are taken at the beginning and also at the 
end of each scholastic year. By means of these measurements and 
tests the exact physical condition of each individual student can be 
ascertained, and such special exercises given as will produce a sym- 
metrical development of the body. 

A valuable adjunct to this department has been the College 
Athletic Association, of which mention is made under the head of 
"Student Organizations." 



The College Library. 
E. T. Harrison, Librarian. 

The College library may properly be regarded as one of the de- 
partments of the institution, as its aid for purposes of reference and its 
influence upon the mental development of the students must always be 
felt throughout all courses. The present quarters of the library, while 
adequate for its immediate needs, will necessarily be too limited in the 
course of time. The reading room is well arranged and lighted, and 
is in all respects comfortable and convenient. 

While the library is not large, the collection of works has been 
carefully chosen, and the shelves contain a fair supply of works of 
reference, history, biography, essays, poetry and the standard works 
of fiction. Several hundred volumes of bound government reports 
form an important addition to the reference works of the library. 
Many of the leading magazines and a large number of newspapers are 
subscribed for. 

Donations to Library. 

Grateful acknowledgment is made to the following for valuable 
additions to the College Library: Johns Hopkins University — Re- 
ports of Geological Survey; Weather Service and Highway Commis- 
sion; Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C. ; and the Countj^ 
Press for valuable additions of their publications.

Courses of Study. 

In order to systematize the work of the numerous departments of 
the College, and as far as possible arrange for specialization within 
the limits consistent with the normal development of individual 
students, four distinct courses of study have been prescribed, one of 
which the student is expected to choose upon entering the collegiate 
department. These courses are the Agricultural, Mechanical Kngi- 
neering. Scientific and Classical. In three of these, the Agricultural, 
Mechanical Engineering and Classical, a continuous and progressive 
course of work, beginning in the Freshman year, and gradually nar- 
rowing in the three succeeding years until the class-work is almost 
wholly specialized, has been found to be most satisfactory. A broad 
and liberal foundation is first laid in the Freshman and Sophomore 
years, and then the particular study desired — agricultural, mechanical 
or the classical branches, is emphasized more and more until the end 
of the course. 

In the Agricultural Course the main study is scientific agricul- 
ture in all its various branches. The detailed statement of the 
arrangement of the course is given on another page. The object of 
the course is to acquaint young men who propose to engage in farm- 
ing with the results of recent investigation and research, in order to 
enable them to engage in practical, general farming, dairying or stock- 
raising, in accordance with the best known methods of modern times. 
The course leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science. 

The Short Winter Course in Agriculture is especially designed 
for those who have neither time nor the opportunity to take the regu- 
lar four years' course. In fact, it is really designed for those actuallj^ 
engaged in farming, and who can spare a few weeks during the 
winter to attend lectures, and to follow the practical work of the 
College and Station. The course embraces the following subjects: 
Farm crops, drainage, stock-breeding, stock-feeding, manures, 
tobacco, dairy husbandry, chemistry, horticulture, entomology, 
plant physiology and pathology, farm accounts, road construction, 
carpentry, blacksmi thing, pipe fitting, veterinary science, the princi- 
ples of citizenship and the elements of business law. The entire 
expense, including board, need not be over fifty dollars ($50). The 
course extends through the months of January and February. All 
details are in charge of W. T. Z,. Taliaferro, Professor of Agricul- 
ture, and H. J. Patterson, Director of the Experiment Station. 

The details of the Mechanical Engineering Course will be found 
on another page. The practical work of this course is most thor- 
ough. The student is familiarized from the first with the use of 
tools and implements of wood and iron work. He is given daily 
practice in the shops, and is encouraged to develop whatever inventive 
talent he may have. It is believed that students completing this 



43 

course will have no difficulty in securing employment after gradua- 
tion in the field of mechanics or mechanical engineering. The course 
leads to the degree of Mechanical Engineer. 

The Classical Course was instituted to meet a demand on the 
part of the patrons of the College for a course of study which should 
prepare young men to enter the so-called learned professions. The 
course emphasizes the modern languages, I^atin, mythology, English, 
civics and pyschology, with a moderate amount of mathematics and 
the natural and physical sciences. The degree of Bachelor of Arts 
is conferred upon its graduates. 

The Scientific Course is designed for those who desire to secure the 
advantages of a general liberal education, with the opportunity of 
specializing in some line of modern science — chemistry, biology, 
botany, vegetable pathology, entomology, veterinary science, physics, 
civil engineering or political science. The basis of the course is a thor- 
ough training in mathematics, English and the principles of citizen- 
ship and government. Owing to the number of departments repre- 
sented in this course, it is found necessary to begin differentiation 
with a view to specialization in the Junior year. In the Senior year, 
as will be seen in the detailed outline of the course on another page, 
the work is arranged in a series of groups and studies, each group 
containing one major study and several minors. This is the plan 
adopted by most of the prominent and successful colleges of the 
present day, and presents the twofold advantage of concentration of 
the student's labor and opportunity for ample laboratory work. The 
degree conferred for all branches of this course is Bachelor of 
Science. 

Requirements for Degrees. 

As a requisite for graduation, the candidate for a degtee must, in 
addition to satisfactorily completing the work previously outlined, 
submit a thesis which meets the approval of the Faculty. 

The subject for this thesis must be approved by the head of the 
department in which the investigation is to be pursued prior to Feb- 
ruary ist, and the thesis completed must be submitted not later than 
May 15. 

The degree of Master of Arts may be conferred upon graduates 
of this College holding the Bachelor of Arts degree, and who conform 
to the following rules: 

1 . The candidate must apply for the degree in writing at least 
one scholastic year before the degree will be conferred. The applica- 
tion must contain a description of the extra work, by virtue of which 
the candidate expects to receive the degree. . , 

2. The candidate must submit one or more theses on subjects 
assigned by the Professor of English and Civics; said thesis or theses 
must be approved by the President of the College, Professor of Eng- 
lish and Civics and the Professor of I^anguages of this College. 



3. The candidate must be prepared to submit to an examination 
in the works of the following authors: Caesar, Nepos, Sallust, Virgil, 
Cicero, Ovid, Horace, Livy, Tacitus, Plautus, Terence, Juvenal. 

The degree of Master of Science may be conferred by the Faculty 
as follows: 

1 . Upon students who have completed the undergraduate course, 
and in addition have pursued a successful course of graduate study 
for one year at this College, consisting of a major and two minor sub- 
jects, not more than one of which shall be taken in the same depart- 
ment of the College, and to occupy not less than thirty hours per 
week. The course of study to be outlined by the professor in charge 
of the major subject, and approved by the Faculty. 

2. Upon college graduates of not less than two years' standing, 
who have resided at this College for two j'^ears, and have completed 
the equivalent of the above course of study. 

3. Upon graduates of this College of not less than three years' 
standing, who having been connected with institutions of learning or 
research, where adequate facilities for advanced work are available, 
have completed a course equivalent to (i) and who have passed in the 
required examinations and have presented a satisfactory thesis. 

Outline ol Courses. 

The following tables will serve to illustrate in a succinct manner 
the subjects offered in each item of every session, with the number of 
periods allotted to each. The subjects for the Senior year are not 
tabulated for the Agricultural and General Science Courses, as they 
are mostly elective. Numerals in parenthesis indicate practical work. 
Two periods of practical work is regarded as equivalent to one period 
of recitative*work, the College day being divided into eight periods 
of recitative or class work of forty-five minutes each.

Short Winter Course in Agfriculture — Commencing January 6, J904. 

A ten weeks' course designed for those who are unable to take 
one of the longer courses, and including the largest amount of purely 
practical information about farming in all its phases. This course is 
invaluable to the young man desiring that information on agricultural 
topics so necessary to meet the sharp competion of the present day. 
The College authorities have removed the nominal charge of $5.00. 
We are anxious to have the young men of Maryland, who intend to 
remain on the farm, embrace this opportunity. Many cannot aflford 
a four years' course. This solves the problem for them. 

Outline of the Course. 

The work of the course consists of lectures and practical exer- 
cises in the laboratories, shops, greenhouses, barns and creamery. 
The subjects handled and the allotment of hours are as follows: Farm 
crops and cultivation of the soil, 10; plant production, 10; farm live 



50 / . 

stock, 20; tobacco, 6; stock feeding, 9; agricultural chemistry, 10; 
manures, 10; farm accounts, 12; dairying, 40; veterinary science, 20; 
carpentry, blacksmithing and pipe fitting, 50; plant physiology and 
pathology, 15; economic entomology, 20; horticulture, 30; road con- 
struction, 5; principles of citizenship, 10. 

No Expense for Tuition. Use of Laboratories or Supplies. 

Good board at moderate rates can be secured in the neighboring 
villages of Berwyn, lyakeland, Riverdale and Hyattsville — all within 
short distance of the College and Experiment Station. Electric cars 
make frequent connections. A limited number can be accommo- 
dated at the College for $4.00 per week. 

Apprenticeships in Agricultitre* 

The Agricultural Experiment Station, instead of having all the 
work in the dairy and horticultural divisions performed by regularly 
paid laborers, has some performed by apprentices. The apprentice- 
ships in these divisions have been established with five objects in 
view, viz. : ist. — In order to offer to young men who have a good com- 
mon school education, and who have not the means for taking either a 
regular college course, or even a short course, an opportunity to be- 
come trained and skilled laborers in the dairy or some class of horti- 
cultural work. 2nd. — In order to enable young farmers to take up 
and engage in some of the specialties in farming on their own farms 
in an intelligent manner. 3rd. — In order to supply some of the numer- 
ous applications that come to the College and Station for skilled help 
of the character indicated. 4th. — In order to give the College and 
Station a nucleus for the extension of their work and a more appre- 
ciative constituency. 5th. — In order to have some of our labor per- 
formed by persons who have more interest in what they are doing 
than the money they are to receive. 

These apprenticeships are open to farmers' sons on the following 
terms: The Station will board and rooni the apprentice or pay the 
equivalent in money as preferred. The Station will furnish the in- 
struction and facilities for instruction given in the sevieral branches 
pertaining to the specialty taken up. 

Those serving a dairy apprenticeship will be expected to devote 
from three to five hours of each day in receiving class-room instruc- 
tion, and in study, besides the time devoted to practice in the skilled 
operations. It is expected that apprentices shall become thoroughly 
familiar with the scientific feeding of dairy stock, and with all the 
modem practices pertaining to dairy and creamery management. The 
plan pursued is to divide the work which would ordinarily be per- 
formed by one laborer among three apprentices. A dairy apprentice 
is expected to stay at the Station for six months. 



51 

The horticultural apprentice is to serve for one year on the 
same terms as the dairy apprentice. The instruction taken in this 
division will be given at the same time, and with short course 
students of the College. The horticultural apprentice will be ex- 
pected to take part in all classes of the work of this division, but he 
may specialize, so as to become specially skilled in either large fruits, 
small fruits, truck crops, floriculture, nursery management, green^ 
house management or spraying. The apprentices shall have access 
to the libraries and reading-rooms of the Station at all hours. 

The Station can accommodate but a limited number of appren- 
tices, and vacancies will be filled in the order in which applications 
for the same are received. 

After an apprentice has served his time, should a position be 
desired by him, we will take pleasure in recommending him to a 
place whenever we have a request for skilled help in that particular 
line, provided that such apprentice has proven himself worthy. So 
far we have had more applications for skilled help on farms and in 
creameries than we have been able to supply. Make applications and 
requests for further information to

Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station,

General Information. 

Requirements for Admission. 

For admission to the College Department, Freshman Class, an 
entrance examination is required. This examination will be held at 
the College on September 15th and i6th, 1903. The applicant will be 
expected to pass a satisfactory examination in the following subjects: 
English grammar, composition and analysis. United States history, 
arithmetic (complete), algebra (as far as quadratics), political and 
physical geography. A mark of seventy per cent, is necessary to 
pass. For entrance to the Preparatory Department the requirements 
are: English grammar, arithmetic (as far as percentage), United 
States history and political geography. 

Every applicant for admission to the College must bring satisfac- 
tory testimonials as to character and previous scholarship, from one 
or more persons qualified so to speak — his former teacher, pastor or 
neighbor, acquainted with his general reputation. This will be ab- 
solutely insisted upon. No student need apply for entrance who cannot 
furnish such credentials. 

Students from newly-acquired territory or any foreign country 
must have a guardian appointed with parental powers, with whom 
the President can deal in any case of emergency . 

Applicants having completed the eight grades of the grammar 
school course upon presentation of a certified copy of the final report 
showing record of work completed and certificate of satisfactory de- 
portment from the teacher in charge, may be admitted on trial to the 
Freshman Class without further examination. It must be understood 
that such assignment is made conditional upon the applicant's demon- 
strating his fitness to bear the responsibilities assumed. Promotions 
and reductions will be made in six weeks after the resumption of the 
regular exercises, as the individual cases may require. 

Applicants for admission to higher classes than the Freshman 
must be prepared to take an examination equivalent to that given at 
the College for promotion to such classes, or must present certificates 
from county or city schools covering the work of the lower College 
classes as hereinbefore stated. Experience has proven that it is 
almost impossible for a new student to succeed in the work of the 
mechanical course as a sophomore; and such assignment will be made 
only upon the candidate presenting satisfactory evidence of proficiency 
in drawing and woodwork. 

Examinations and Promotions. 

In order to pass from one class to the next higher class a student 
is required to pass the yearly examination by a mark of at least sixty 



53 

per cent, in each study, and to have a combined mark in each branch 
(daily and examination) of at least seventy per cent. A failure in not 
more than one branch will enable a student to pass to the next class 
with condition in that study in which he has failed; but in every case 
the student is required to make good such failure during the next 
year. 

^However, no student in the Mechanical Course will be promoted 
to the Junior Class, who is deficient in Sophomore Mathematics. 

It has been found necessary to make some regulations to provide 
for cases of using unfair means in examinations. The Faculty, there- 
fore, has agreed upon the following rules, which will be rigidly ad- 
hered to: 

I. — "Any student detected in so doing will be required to sur- 
render his papers, and will not under any circumstances be given an- 
other examination in that particular study." 

II. — "Any student detected in so doing will not, under any cir- 
cumstances, be allowed to receive a commission as a cadet officer," 

III. — "Assignment to course can only be made upon direction of 
parent, either by letter or verbally. Change of course is not encour- 
aged, except in cases of apparent necessity." 

Scholarships. 

The College offers a number of scholarships — four for Baltimore 
City, and one for each county of the State. These scholarships are 
awarded to the successful candidate in competitive examinations, con- 
ducted by the Superintendent of Public Instruction of Baltimore City, 
and in the counties by the County Examiner. All scholarship stu- 
dents must be prepared for entrance to the Freshman class, and are 
required to take the regular entrance examination. Each scholarship 
is gcod for four years, or for such part thereof as the holder remains 
at the College. It is then again open for competition. The cost per 
year for scholarship students will be found under the head of "Student 
Expenses." The following is an extract from the requirements of the 
Board of Trustees, relating to scholarships: 

"Persons holding certificates of scholarship must present them- 
"selves at the College, or other designated place, at the date which 
"may be named, in the September or January next following the 
"award, and be examined by College authorities for entrance to the 
"Freshman class. Alternates are to be thus examined, as well as prin- 
"cipals, and in case of a failure of the principal to secure or hold the 
"scholarship, the alternate will have the first right to the place, if 
"within a year from date of the certificate of award. 

"Persons holding certificates of scholarship must, in order to se- 
"cure the same, pass the entrance examination of the College, and (if 

♦This regulation will go into effect June, 1904. 



"entering in January) such other examination as may be required to 
"join ihe Freshman Class. Every one must declare his intention of 
^^ completing the prescribed course of study of the College, in either Agri- 
'^^ culture or Mechanical Engineering, provided he retains his Scholar- 
*^skip, and must make an advance payment of $15 on the yearns account. 
"And to hold a scholarship, the student must make the subsequent pay- 
' 'ments and meet such requirements of the College as to scholarship and 
"deportment, as may be prescribed by the President and faculty. By 
' ^passing special examinations, candidates for scholarship may be per- 
"mitted to enter the Sophomore class, or by presenting satisfactory 
"certificates.^^ . 

Experiment Station Scholarships and Fellowships. 

In order to further investigations relating to agriculture or horti- 
culture, the Experiment Station has arranged to oflfer scholarships 
not exceeding one hundred dollars in amount to students pursuing 
such investigations. Those competing for scholarships shall com- 
mence their investigations not later than the second term of the 
Junior year, the awards of scholarship to be paid on satisfactory com- 
pletion of the Senior year's work. The amount of such scholarships 
shall be determined from time to time and depend upon the character 
of the work in hand. 

When investigations begun under scholarships are not completed, 
or where further work is deemed advisable, fellowships have been 
established to be awarded for such time and amount as may be 
deemed necessary for the completion of the work, but will not exceed 
three hundred dollars per year. Further information may be obtained 
from the Director of the Experiment Station. 



Student Expenses. 

The expenses of the college year for the several classes of 
students are as follows. No reductions are made for regular vaca- 
tions. It will be noted below that no charge will be made for tuition 
or books.

Explanation ol Fees. 

The laboratory fee is intended to cover the cost of the materials 
and apparatus used by the student in practical laboratory work. 

The physician's fee is to provide for the attendance of the regular 
College physician in all ordinary cases of sickness. 

The breakage fee is to cover all losses to the College caused by 
careless breakage or other damage to property by the students. Each 
loss is divided proportionately among the students, and the unused 
balance of each fee refunded at the close of the year. In case the 
loss is known to be caused by any particular student, the whole 
amount is charged to his account. 

Except in cases of extended illness, no money will be refunded for 
long-continued absence or enforced withdrawal from the College. 

Students entering late in the session will be charged according to the 
date of entrance. No allowance will be made for less than one month. 

'- Agreement for Matriculation. 

It is understood that the President of the College, as the exec- 
utive of the same, and acting for the Board of Trustees, a party to 
this contract, has the right to ask the withdrawal of a student at any 
time, when in his judgment such withdrawal may be necessary either 
for the interest of the young man or the institution which he attends. 
It is further understood that a parent or guardian can at any time 
withdraw his son or ward, subject to regulations hereinbefore set 
forth. 

No student will be accepted as a matriculate until the contract card 
is signed by parent or guardian and received by the President of the 
College. 

Articles Necessary to be Provided. 

All students are required to provide themselves with the follow- 
ing articles, to be brought from home or purchased from the College 
Park store on arrival : 

1 dozen white standing collars. 
6 pairs white gloves (uniform). 
6 pairs white cuifs. 

, I pair blankets (for single bed). . -^ 

3 pairs sheets (for single bed). . 

4 pillow cases. "^ , ' ' 

2 white dimity bedspreads (three-quarters size). , 
6 towels. • - 

I chair (uniform). 

1 pillow. - -■ . ■ 

I mattress (shuck), cotton top (uniform). ' - , 



57 

The room-mates together purchase the following articles: — 

I set of lamp fixtures (uniform). 

1 pitcher and basin (uniform). 

2 tablecloths (uniform). 
I broom. 

I looking-glass. 

I slop-jar (porcelain). 

All the articles marked uniform in the foregoing list can best be 
purchased after the student arrives at the College. The cost of the 
entire list should not be more than $15.00 for the year. This should 
be paid to the Treasurer on entrance, as the College has no fund from 
which it can make advances, and failure to comply with this require- 
ment will subject the student to much inconvenience. Any excess will be 
returned promptly . 

Student Opportunities. 

A limited amount of money can be earned by students by taking 
advantage of the opportunities arising from time to time to do clerical 
work, tutoring, and such other labor as may not interfere with regular 
scholastic duties. Those in need of help to continue their work, and 
whose course is marked by an earnest desire to succeed, are always 
given the preference. The compensation in all cases is fixed at ten 
cents per hour. 

Letter from Department of Agriculture. 

The following letter and circular will be of interest to young men 
entering this institution. It gives an excellent opportunity for them 
to advance themselves in the line of their special work, at the same 
time receiving a compensation which will enable them to pay all ex- 
penses. This offer on the part of the Department of Agriculture is 
greatly appreciated, and will, no doubt, be availed of by many attend- 
ing the land-grant colleges — the best instructors and the most complete 
facilities are the advantages attending the opportunity : — 

Department of Agriculture, Washington D. C, 

June 27th, 1899. 

"Dear Sir— In my annual report to the President for 1898, I announced my 
intention of affording opportunities for graduates of agricultural colleges to 
pursue post-graduate studies in connection with work in the scientific division 
of this department, as far as practicable. In pursuance of this policy, I have 
made an arrangement with the Civil Service Commission for the registration of 
the graduates of colleges receiving the benefits of grants of land or money from 
the United States, who may desire to enter the service of the Department as 
"Scientific Aids," on the terms stated in the notice of the Commission herewith 
enclosed, 

" It seems to be entirely appropriate that the National Government should aid 
the institutions to which it has already so largely given financial support, in the 



58 

preparation of their graduates for posts of usefulness in this department, or in 
the States from which they come, especially as investigators and teachers along 
scientific lines. I hope, therefore, that the effort which I am now making in 
this direction will be but a beginning of the opening up of opportunities for 
graduate study at the National Capital to those of your graduates who are 
especially fitted to do high-grade scientific work. It will, of course be under- 
stood that under present conditions the Department can only admit a very 
limited number of scientific aids. Our purpose is to choose from the eligible 
register those persons who furnish the best evidence of having peculiarly good 
qualifications for aiding in the work of the Department now in progress. 

"In extending this notice will you kindly explain to your graduates the 
necessity of making a clear and full statement of their attainments and 
qualifications in special lines of science? Correspondence regarding application 
blanks and other matters connected with registration should be had promptly 
with the Civil Service Commission. 

"Very respectfully, 

"JAMES WILSON, 

"Secretarv Agriculture." 
To R. W. Silvester, President, College Park, Md. 

Scientific Aid. Department of Agriculture. 

' ■ August ist, 1899. 

The United States Civil Service Commission announces that it 
desires to establish an eligible register for the position of Scientific 
Aid, Department of Agriculture. 

The examination will consist of the subjects mentioned below, 
which will be weighted as follows: 

Subjects. Weights. 

1. College Course with Bachelor's Degree 50- 

2. Post-graduate Course and Special Qualifications... 25 

3. Thesis or Other Literature 25 

Total 100 

It will be noted that applicants will not be required to appear at 
any place for examination, but will be required to file with the Com- 
missioner prior to the hour of closing business, on August ist, 1900, 
their statements and other material which will be required as specified 
in a special form which will be furnished them by the Commission, 
together with application blank (Form 304), in order to have their 
names entered upon the register, which will be made immediately 
after the date mentioned. Persons who are unable to file their appli- 
cations prior to August ist, 1900, may file them at any subsequent 
time, when they will be rated, and the names of those attaining 
eligible averages will be entered upon the register. 

For the information of applicants the following statement is 
made, as received from the Secretary of Agriculture: 



m 

1 . An application will be limited to graduates of colleges receiv- 
ing the benefits of grants of land or money from the United States. 

2. Each applicant must file with the United States Civil Service 
Commission, Washington, D. C, a properly certified statement as to 
the length of time spent in college, the studies pursued, the standing 
in these studies, the special work it is desired to take up, and the 
special qualifications for such work, and finally, a thesis upon such 
scientific subjects as the applicant may select, or in lieu of this, any 
literature on scientific subjects, over his own signature. 

3. The length of time any scientific aid may serve in the Depart- 
ment is limited to two (2) years. 

4. The salary shall not exceed forty dollars ($40.00) per month. 
The minimum age limitation for entrance to this examination is 

twenty (20) years; there is no maximum age limitation. 

This examination is open to all citizens of the United States who 
comply with the requirements. All such citizens are invited to apply. 
They will be examined, graded and certified, without regard to 
any consideration, save their ability as shown by them in the exami- 
nation. Persons desiring to compete should at once apply to the 
United States Civil Service Commission, Washington, D. C, for 
application blanks (Form 304) and special forms. 



Student Organizations. 

Student Clubs for religious, social, literary and athletic purposes 
are encouraged as a means of creating Class and College pride, and 
developing an esprit de corps among the students. Each class has its 
own organization, in which matters relating to class work are dis- 
cussed and directed. Ofl&cers are elected and the unity of the class 
preserved. This has been found to be a decided aid to discipline, and 
tends to raise the standard of student honor.* 

Young Men's Christian Association. 

G. Sturgis, President. A. T. Schenck, Vice-President. 

A. A. Parker, Secretary. H. D. Williar, Treasurer. 

Most encouraging work has been done by this organization dur- 
ing the past year, and much interest has been shown in both the pri- 
vate and public meetings. 

Athletic Association. 

E. P. Walls, President. J. M. Matthews, Vice-President. 

W. R. Mitchell, Secretary. C. P. Page, Treasurer. 

'The accounts of aU Treasurers of Student Organizations will be audited monthly by a 
committee of the Faculty, which committee shall consist of the Professors of Physics, Botany 
and Veterinary Science. 



- •■. Literary Societies. ' . 

Officers of the "New Mercer" I^iterary Society. 
P. L. Peach, President. C. P. Page, Vice-President.

Officers of "Morrill" Literary Society. 
E. P. Walls, President. C. N. Bouic, Vice-President. 

J. P. Collier, Sec'y and Treas. H. D. Watts, Sergeant-at-Arms. 

These societies are invaluable adjuncts to College work. Through 
them a good knowledge of parliamentary law is gained, as well as a 
readiness of expression and activity in thought — qualities particularly 
valuable to the American citizen. 

The Literary Society work is under the general supervision of the 
Instructor in Public Speaking, who is always ready to advise with the 
members in matters of parliamentary law, and train them in the 
delivery of their orations and debates. 

The Oratorical Association of Maryland Colleges. 

The Maryland Agricultural College is a member of this Associa- 
tion, which is composed of St. John's College, Washington College, 
Western Maryland College and Maryland Agricultural College. Con- 
tests are held annually at these colleges, in rotation, and a marked 
improvement is to be observed as a result of its organization.

gratifying improvement in the standard, both of originality and 
expression.

tainments of the same have been marked by a spirit which empha- 
sizes the wisdom of its continuance and encouragement.

The Alumni Association. 

The growth of the Alumni Association during the past year is a 
source of great satisfaction to the ofl&cers of the College, and of the 
Association. Through the efforts of its ofl&cers a banquet was held at 
the College in June, this year. Renewed interest was shown by the 
existing members of the Association, and the occasion was marked by 
a large increase in the membership, recruited largely from the older 
graduates of the College. 

All indications point to a great advance in the growth of the or- 
ganization, and now it is felt that the Association may begin to exer- 
cise its influence along the lines of its avowed purpose and object. At 
its regular annual meeting in June, it was decided that the Association 
would continue its offer of medals for proficiency in three of the de- 
partments of College work. By restricting the competition for the 
medal to be awarded for the best paper on "Agricultural Science" to 
those students pursuing original research, it is intended and hoped, by 
the Association, to stimulate scientific investigation by the students 
in the various scientific departments of the College. With the 
improved and more adequate facilities which have been provided, it is 
thought that the College is well able to promote this class of work to 
a greater extent than has been possible in the past; and the competi- 
tion hereby instituted should tend to elevate the standard of scholar- 
ship in the College. 

It will be a source of gratification to the members of the Associa- 
tion to note the action of the Board of Trustees of the College with 
reference to the holding of scholarships in the College. Three years 
ago the Association passed a resolution looking to the restriction of 
the holders of the State scholarships to the Agricultural and Mechan- 
ical courses in the College. This was with the idea of carrying out 
more completely the ideas of the founders of the College in establish- 
ing a school for instruction in Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts. 
The Board of Trustees last year passed an order putting the restric 
tion in full operation. It is along this and similar lines that the 
Association has a broad field provided in which to exert its efforts, 
and as it increases in strength it may be expected to make its in- 
fluence felt for the advancement of the interest and welfare of the Col- 
lege. The ofl&cers of the Association for the ensuing year are : Pres- 
ident, J. Enos Ray, '92; Vice-President, S. S. Buckley, '93; Secre- 
tary-Treasurer, H. N. Lansdale, '02; Executive Committee, members - 
at-large, F. B. Bomberger, '94, and N. H. Gill, '97. 

Graduates and members of the Association are requested to keep 
the Secretary- Treasurer, H. N. I^ansdale, College Park, Md., in- 
formed of any changes in their addresses. Any information concern- 
ing the older graduates, which will enable the ofl&cers to locate and 
communicate with them, will facilitate their efforts and will tend to 
further the success of the Association.
